Aburrimiento

Is life not a thousand times too short for us to bore ourselves-

With our attention spans dwindling every second this Holiday season, our impatience increases twofold.

Feeling stuck in the moment  Painfully listening to a co-worker’s weekend escapades in Templeton, Iowa, waiting in line for a cold latte that arrives ten minutes too late  The more agitated we feel and the more agitated we become. Stuck with no cell access in a morning meeting, no Twitter on our gadgets, our anxiety increases with the slow passage of time. What can we do during these painful moments?

My cure for “boredom” is to make life interesting, stimulating and fun. Maintaining an emotional balance also requires finding the time for “boring” meditation practice, resting my mind and body

Daily Meditation:

Recognize your boredom this morning. This is all I ask of you before the Holidays set in, settling in to agitate and overwhelm us. When we start practicing now, before we sense ennui enveloping our bodies and spirit? Awareness is a beautiful antidote to boredom.

*It’s also a great method to not getting injured during the winter months*

Muy Feliz

Sometimes one has suffered enough to have the right to never say: I am too happy-

The idea of “surrender” is not one we cling to when it comes to engaging in activitie(s) of our choosing. Rather, the words we use are more akin to fighting a valiant battle, winning at all costs. And you know what? There is nothing wrong with thinking this way Unless thinking this way makes you feel worse that you already do.

May this post serve as an invitation to gently set aside the fear and fight in our lives. In order to truly live.

My idea of surrender, is that surrender gives my mind a chance to let the world seep into my very consciousness. Learning “how to surrender” is not about becoming passive, a “chump” or indifferent. Surrender revolves around accepting our current state of mind, body and spirit. With this acceptance serving as my starting point? I am learning to take the best care I can of my body and my mind.

Daily Meditation:

Consider a moment in your life when “surrendering” led to positive consequences that you were not expecting … 

Be well today!

I’m Simply


Saying that there is a way to be sane. I’m saying that you can
get rid of all this insanity created by the past in you. Just by being a simple
witness of your thought processes.

It is simply sitting silently, witnessing the thoughts, passing before you.
Just witnessing, not interfering not even judging, because the moment you
judge you have lost the pure witness. The moment you say “this is good, this
is bad,” you have already jumped onto the thought process.

It takes a little time to create a gap between the witness and the mind. Once
the gap is there, you are in for a great surprise, that you are not the mind, that
you are the witness, A watcher.

And this process of watching is the very alchemy of real religion. Because as
you become more and more deeply rooted in witnessing, thoughts start
disappearing. You are, but the mind is utterly empty.

That’s the moment of enlightenment. That is the moment that you become for
the first time an unconditioned, sane, really free human being.

This Is Going To Be Pretty Unbearable …

The more you Twitter the worse you run-

Shame, Shame we know your name peeps!  Not a single one of you reading yesterday took the bait we so generously tossed in your general direction:  You teach what you need to learn.  One little, painless comment for or against would have placated the cantankerous Uncle Sachmo!  But no way Jose, you were way too busy lamenting about all of your grand adventures over the past weekend … Now you shale all suffer.   Performing our best Jesse Pinkman impersonation:  Listen up and pay attention, bitches!!!

The single worst part of dispensing advice to others either in a random blog-o-post or over a few cold PBR’s is that NO ONE (re-read this again) actually follows through with what you have to share.  When most self-absorbed (<— If this word is too abrasive choose another one that best fits your personality) peeps ask a question, they already have a picturesque answer in mind-which is usually, the answer they would like to hear coming from your mouth.

Quick question:  Why ask for advice or help in the first place?  When you know you will not use it.

The challenge to our dear readers today is this:  When someone asks you for help or an opinion later this afternoon.  Zip it up and don’t say a thing to the person asking!  Listen for once and lend a good ear.  Chances are they could care less what you have to say in return.  Listen and help guide them to the answer they want, the answer they want to here from their own mouth.

Is this you?!? <—Must clicky!

Or is this you?!?<—Must Clicky(Dear Lord above let this be you!!!)

The Plan-

The Workout-

Before dawn go outside and enjoy the Moon and Venus dancing in the sky above you.  Awaken your senses with a nice flowing Sun Salutations Series, bringing balance and energy to you this morning.  What you do after this is up to you …
